CHELSEA NOMADS STROLL TO WIN
Chelsea Nomads 219-6; Ley Hill 179 all out
Chelsea Nomads won the toss and decided firstly, that the format was to be that of a timed game (i.e. 20 overs from 6 pm) and secondly, that they would bat. They scored 219-6 from 42 overs, the highest scorer being Sisley with 57. There was one run-out, and Jamie Matyus-Flynn took 1-44, but the pick of the Ley Hill bowlers was 14 years old Tom Randall with 4-44. Three of his wickets were bowled and the fourth LBW. Ley Hill got off to a rocky start, losing the top three batsmen (Jon Lown (9), Lucas Batt (keeper) (0) and George Woodley (2) for 23 runs. Then we had a sparkling stand of 77 between Ben Woodbridge (47) and Chris Morris (49) which took Ley Hill to a respectable score of 100-4. After a quick cameo by newcomer Paul Eckersley (5), Jamie Matyus-Flynn then came to the crease and scored 33 off 18 balls before being bowled, the main partnership being with his son Jon-Paul Matyus-Flynn (14) after Joe Yerrell came and went for another duck. Once Matyus-Flynn Senior was out on 175, however, it became obvious that winning was a lost cause and Tom Randall (4) and Paul Green (Captain) were left to bat out the final (38th) over for a draw. However it was not to be and Randall was bowled by T. Hayes. The Chelsea Nomads bowlers all shared the wickets fairly equally between them.
